? >> that is good news. >> you know, the sequester has happened. >> how does that change the equation? the dire predictions that we have heard regarding the sequester? >> we need to do everything we can to avoid self-inflicting wounds. >> people are finally optimistic. >> but it has to be based on common sense. >> i would like to say that common sense has come out of the closet. >> bill clinton calls for an end to doma. >> former president bill clinton is having a change of heart and urging the supreme court to do the same. >> clinton made doma the law of the land, clearly he was not proud to do. it was done under the cover of darkness. >> i believe that doma is unconstitutional. >> we learned from history. >> i know it is unconstitutional. >> we learn from history. >> this is a discriminatory law. >> this is a civil rights battle that is very nearly won. >> we learned today that the economy added 236,000 jobs in february. and the unemployment rate is down to 7.7%. the lowest since 2008. and all of that is very good news. now, sometimes these jobs reports, it can be sort of good news at the top
that would change the topic of the conversation away from the primary thing that was most important to me. i thought it was too important for me to just stand-up and say hey, i did it and try to get a little bit of fame. >> mr. romney, at that point in that tape says he wants you to put out the full tape. what was your response? >> let's do it. he asked for it, let's do it. called it a snippet insinuating it was taken out of context. so, at that point, he asked for it, so i decided to give it to him. >> president obama used your material to close a debate at a very crucial time after his first debate was heavily criticized. this was his closing statement. what was going through your mind? >> it was the last line of the debate. i was sitting on the edge of my couch at the time. i was watching the first debate and there was no mention of it. you know, there was certainly a cheer erupted in the room at the time. i was thrilled that he hit him with it when he did. you know, it was well done. it worked out exactly the way i hoped it would. i'm thrilled he mentioned it. i think he used it to great
party, hubert humphry had no idea how to end the war. when you needed was total change at the white house. the democrats had to go to nixon could come in and end vietnam. but then less than a week before the election, it all went horribly wrong for richard nixon, because less than a week before election, on halloween night, 1968, the democratic president, lbj, went on tv in a surprise nationally televised address. he made a surprise announcement that peace was at hand. the communist side, the vietnamese side was going to be make concessions at peace talks. the south vietnamese were going to agree to a deal. peace was at hand. the terms were all set. peace was at hand. in recognition of the fact that peace was about to be declared, the united states would step back right away and stop all military operations in vehement. lbj said that on thursday night. the election was going to be tuesday. turns out the democrats know how to end this war. that was bad news for richard nixon, but good news for the country who wanted the war to be over. good news for the people fighting the war. this
of progress so that the public sense of urgency has really tipped. it's changed viscerally and seismically. so i think that as long as we can sustain that sense of urgency, as long as people in congress hear from the country, i think it can be passed. we flew knew it was going to be uphill job. it was always going to be a marathon, not a sprint. and the asaul weapons ban was always the most ambitious, the politically tough else of all these provisions. and i am going to be proud to be with dianne feinstein in supporting this measure when it's offered as an amendment and i hope that it will pass. >> today the news out of colorado was so shocking in terms of the death of the corrections commissioner last night, shot on the doorstep of his home. that happening just hours before the colorado governor was due to sign three new pieces of gun reform legislation into law. obviously there's no reason for us to believe that the incidents are connected other than the fact that it was a gun murder. just a remarkable confluence of hid lines though. i wonder how you view the fact that colorado and also new
ideas. we're taking concrete actions to change course. i have unequivocally prohibited the use of torture by the united states, and i have ordered the prison at guantanamo by early next year. >> while the united states has done much to promote peace and prosperity we have at times been disengaged and we thought to dictate our terms. >> sean: ambassador, arrogant, derisive and contrary to our deals and guilty of torture and we're giving money to the muslim brotherhood. what is wrong were that? >> those kinds of comments don't win us any friends and seen as signs of weakness. this president thinks history began with this administration. when we encourage muslim brotherhood movements around the region and disregard king abdullah and other friends in the arab world we are giving encouragement to those that are going to try to overthrow them. get ready, things will get worse there. >> sean: and king abdullah is a wolf in sheep's clothing. what do you think he'll do with the money and tanks we give them? >> i think he should apology the things he said. i think it's pursuing the milit
. but this week i think exposed some serious changes, if not a rift within the elder wing -- the elder sort of establishment wing of the republican party in the upper chamber. not just on sequester but with the rand paul talky filibuster. >> i was pleased see that picture because normally there's a democrat standing there getting a scowl. >> i've been on elevators like that myself. you know, i think that, you know, i appreciate what senator mccain and senator graham were trying to say. under no circumstances are americans at home in danger of getting shot by a drone from the u.s. government. however, they continue to be a little bit behind the curve of where a broad swath of the american people are. sure, you know, a large majority of the american people believe that we should use drones to go after terrorists abroad, but they also want our constitution protected, and there's a way to do both. that's what the president has been trying to convey. that's ultimately what the attorney general put in his letter yesterday. >> is he fairly brazen. >> it doesn't make it right. just because they did
about those unemployed over -- >> diskournled. >> what is it? 27 weeks or so? >> that's not changing a whole lot and the real negative in the report was that the amount of people who dropped out of the workforce, meaning part of the reason why the rate went down is because fewer people technically working and just because they're not working doesn't mean they don't exist in the country and this i think is going to be a long-term structural issue in this economy, not one that's amenable to short fixes. fwher a short transition of people making stuff to doing stuff. >> we have talked about the notion of the unemployment rate and what that means and getting some of those incredibly low numbers of the past. we are a different country now. >> it will be a long time and giving critics of current policy fodder but i'm not sure this is a government issue as much as this is a general issue. >> thank you. >> thanks. >> great pleasure. following the big decision of the vatican today. the cardinals decided when they'll begin selecting the next pope. the conclave will begin next tuesday, march 12
, but it really won't do anything about climate change. why? well, given the demand for oil in the united states, canada's producers will still get alberta's oil to the refineries in the gulf of mexico. there are other pipeline possibilities, but the most likely method is by train. the report estimates that it would take daily runs of 15 trains with about 100 tanker cars each to carry the amount planned by transcanada, the company. that's a large increase but one likely to be met. the increases in oil transported by rail in the united states are already staggering. car loads of crude oil on trains doubled between 2010 and 2011, then they tripled between 2011 and 2012. and, remember, research shows that moving oil by train produces much higher emissions of carbon dioxide than were the oil to float through a pipeline. canada could also transport the oil to asia. where demand is booming. light now that seems a distant and costly prospect but having visited alberta recently, i can a test that canadian businessmen and officials are seriously planning for asian markets, since they now regard american
bet there are a lot of people who might return to the church if it changed. after tonight's celebrations are over, the question will be whether saint francis will be that change. "anderson cooper 360" starts right now. >> erin, thanks very much. good evening, everyone. good morning from rome. the world has a new pope, as you know do in and out know by now. 1.2 billion catholics have a new leader and unlike many they have ever had. a short time ago, stepped on to the balcony, begins day one of his papacy as a true pioneer in many ways. the first latin american pope, the first noneuropean pope in modern times. first to take the name francis after saint francis of assisi. this one made history quickly, as well. extraordinary scene in the square. the five rounds of voting, a decision. and as the white smoke rose, the crowd in st. peter's square erupted. the joy. this time, not tempered by mourning as it was eight years ago, because for the first time in 598 years, the previous pope is alive and well, retired, not deceased. as word got out, the crowd grew larger. people literal
instead of compassionate policies, they're really just working on the box and not changing the actual pizza. >> that's right. look. i think that priebus, mentioned the phrase self-deportation which was an air ball of a line that romney used in the primaries and said once hispanic voters hear that, they tune you out entirely. what is interesting is that there is a lot of talk about the language and the presentation. some substance on immigration reform. but to me, what i see is the fundamental identity of the party right now is that it is anti-tax and once big cuts in the size of government. and that has not changed. and through the whole budget wars we've been seeing, the sequester, i think this came up the last time i was here. the economic conservatives, the low tax, small government conservatives have established their supremacy. they have beaten out the national security hawks who didn't want to see cuts to defense. i think this is an example where they're beating the social conservatives who aren't ready for a shift in gay marriage. opposition within the party to gay marriage is
and no amount of public shaming could change that fact. >> quite honestly, i'm really aashamed to see that congress doesn't have the guts to stand up, make a change and put a ban on these type of weapons and universal background checks. >> with the assault weapons ban out of picture for the time being, the focus is now on those universal background checks. the overwhelming majority of americans are for universal background checks. 88% of voters say they support these checks according to the latest polling from quinnipiac. as for gun owners, 85% of gun owners support background checks. late last night majority heard harry reid issued this statement, i want to be clear in order to be effective, any bill that passes the senate must include background checks. a welcome statement but senator chuck schumer is still searching for republican co-sponsor. then there's the question of the house. speaker john boehner hinted at support earlier this week. >> do you think background checks and improving background checks might be part of that? >> they should actually do a real background check on ev
that are interested in running out the clock or changing the subject or drowning out the majority of the american people to prevent any of these reforms from happening at all. they're doing everything they can to make all our progress collapse under the weight of fear and frustration or their assumption is is that people will just forget about it. i read an article in the news just the other day wondering is washington, has washington missed its opportunity because as time goes on, after newtown, somehow people start moving on and forgetting. let me tell you, the people here, they don't forget. grace's dad is not forgetting. hadiyah's mom hasn't forgotten. the notion that two months or three months after something as horrific as what happened in newtown happens -- and we moved on to other things? that's not who we are. that's not who we are. i want to make sure every american is listening today. less than 100 days ago that happened. and the entire country was shocked. and the entire country pledged we would do something about it and this time it would be different. shame on us if we've forgotten.
has tried to use a lot of political capital. >> on changing the country's gun laws. >> we need everybody to remember how we felt 100 days ago. this time really is different. >> president's address will coincide with 140 events in 29 states. >> national day of action. calling on congress to pass new gun laws. >> to pressure congress on background checks. >> it's looking harder than anybody thought. >> the name of the game is getting 60 votes for democrats right now. >> republican senator chuck grassley. >> the grassley amendment in the senate. >> is crafting his own gun bill. >> strips out the universal background checks. >> known to be an opponent of background checks. >> everyone knows the politics of this issue are hard. >> we've got to suck it up. be courageous and do the right thing. >> there are some powerful voices on the other side interested in running out the clock or changing the subject. >> there is not a bill on the hill that provides a universal check. >> why not? >> universal checks is a dishonest premise. criminals aren't going to be checked. >> i think they're o
powerful than millions of voices calling for change. those voices are a silent majority that needs to be vocal and need to be galvanized and organized. i think the votes can be there for a ban on illegal trafficking, the instance you described earlier involving ebel that killed the correction officer in colorado and killed another person on his way to shooting the police officer who tried to apprehend him. classic straw purchase and should be banned. background checks to prevent him from having weapons, deranged people like adam lanza from having access. the sheer volume of bullets and ammunition and rounds in that war arsenal is absolutely stunning. we need to make sure that we keep those ammunition and firearms out of the hands of dangerous people. school safety and mental health issues, those core provisions i think have a lot of support. we need americans to remind my colleagues in the senate their voices have to be heard. >> it struck me today that we've been chronicling on this show the relentless political activism on this issue. the beltway common wisdom implies people will
. there is still a lot of good to be gained at cpac. this harsh lesson will agitate maybe change. >> the good young voices if we with that characterization, they are overshadowed by the palins and the trumps who will pick up the media and not be heard. >> they will make their selection decisions more carefully. >> i don't know. we will see. >> mixed reactions to the death of venezuelan president hugo chavez. he died tuesday of cancer. allies call him a hero and they compared chavez to a saint. here in the states, others are celebrating the possibility of a new chapter in u.s. relations since venezuela is the fourth largest flyer of oil to the u.s. our facebook fans are weighing in on how his death could impact relations. i'm not sure relations will improve. chavez's successor is stepping in without much a do. that pretends not much will change. that's the serious side. now here is colbert's take with another headline that is much more alarming. >> hugo chavez, venezuelan strong man and friend of the show is dead. repeat, hugo chavez is dead. obviously -- i know. obviously this leaves a huge hole in
passengers every day and they're rightly protesting this bone-headed change as is the federal law enforcement officers association. and how long until the nra get in and says, hey, air travelers being unarmed is a threat to their civil liberties. most of the policy change makes sense. now you can bring on board souvenir baseball bats, pool cues, golf clubs, but still no box cutters, no razor blades, no knives that don't fold and no water from outside because stuff. some said the change to allow small pocket knives comes because they're not dangerous. oh. others said small knives are hard for the tsa to detect. so allowing them lowers the tsa's failure rate. oh, that, boys and girls, is what you call moving the goalposts. the tsa's job is to make us safer. this does not do that. and frankly it contributes to my sense that they're doing this sort of kabuki theater or security theater. the faa is also not keeping us safer with the absurd continuation of the ban on using electronic devices during takeoff and landing. why can i read a book, a printed book, but not an ereader? because it emits elec
